Trail shared by Josh Matta

A silly-fun descent with a couple of root gardens to keep you honest.

Description

After reaching the Green Chair Trail from Cady Hill Climb, take Bear's for the quickest and most fun way back to the Trailhead. The trail is divide into distinct sections with the top half riding very much like a downhill pump track. It has tons of rollers that can be doubled and sweet berms. The trail finishes with a sweet righthand downhill helix into a short double jump.

A short uphill will bring you to the top of the old part of Bear's, which is more old-school, but still very flowy. This Stowe classic contains fast, Endor-like singletrack with a mix of smooth buff, doubles, berms with some very rooty sections. Arguably the best flowing trail in the Town of Stowe.

Good run, not an obvious descent, lots of roots and steep tight berms
